  1. Ah, Stonehenge! I heard something recently about scientists finding something underneath. Don’t know the story. It’s one of those places that has always held a fascination! 🙂

    • Hello Margaret-Rose 🙂 I am very grateful for this entry. I would be willing to hike for hours to see it, but it is 3 hours drive from Siena (where I will be staying from 6 to 11 October), so my first impulse (cool, I will go there) will remain unanswered 😉 One thing I am still clueless about is the word “jera” that I could not find the translation in English for. Can you help, please?

      • Nessun idea, Paula. But you know the ‘j’ doesn’t actually appear in the Italian alphabet; which makes it ‘iera’; and ‘ieri’ means ‘yesterday’ …. But that’s guessing.
        It’s just the name of the place is all, from my p.o.v. 🙂

  2. I have a photograph of myself and my younger brother standing among the stones when I was 12. You can’t do that any more. I’ll confess when we took our boys to see Stonehenge, we just looked at it through the fence and then got back on the bus to Salisbury. It just wasn’t the same.

    • Thank you very much J 🙂 I think the subject is what makes this shot special, I have better black & whites. I have just stopped by your place, and I am impressed and very happy to have discovered your blog. You have talent!

  3. This is an amazingly restrained photo, which somehow captures timelessness, mystery and grandeur in its very restraint. Thank you for bringing those things to my Sunday afternoon.

    • 🙂 I hear people complaining about how it different the experience of visiting now is, but I think it is a good thing that it is fenced and further away from the visiting crowds. I loved being there, Sylvia. Thank you for coming to see me. I know how busy these days have been.

  4. Stunning photo of a place I know and love. In the old days you could wander right up to the stones. Some friends and I camped under the stones overnight many years ago. A few days ago there was an article about brown patches that have appeared (because the hose was too short to water the grass all the way round) these patches show where the stones once stood in the missing section of the circle.
